Storyline

Polly Clarke, the author of highly-coloured romantic novels, arrives on the island to rent a cottage and Ted is smitten - though the others in the house are not exactly encouraging. Polly invites Ted for drinks, which means he has to rush through a mass he is giving for some visiting nuns, and on arriving at Polly's cottage finds it is a house-warming party, not an intimate twosome, with the nuns amongst the guests. In fact after everybody else has left Polly dashes Ted's hopes even further by announcing that she wants to become a nun. Written by don @ minifie-1

Quotes

Mrs Doyle: I never thought we'd have anyone like her staying here.
Father Ted: Hm? Oh, Miss Clarke, yes, it's very exciting isn't it? Famous novelist, here.
Mrs Doyle: You've never read any of her books, have you, father?
Father Ted: Actually, I'm a bit of a fan. That's where I was the other day - at her book signing.
Mrs Doyle: Well, I'm very surprised to hear that, father. I didn't think you'd like that sort of thing. I read a bit of one of them once. God, I couldn't finish it. The language, unbelievable!

...in the second season, with Clare Grogan (as C.P. Grogan for union reasons) as a guest star playing Niamh Connelly - an angry, Sinead O'Connor-esquire pop star. Grogan had a pop band in the early 80's called "Altered Images".

"And God Created Woman" finds Ted uncomfortable with seemingly coincidental, non-stop, run-ins with a woman who writes steamy novels (Ted's guilty pleasure) and who takes an apparent interest in Ted - eventually ending up at the Parochial House to stay for the evening. Ted's extreme discomfort with this, mixed with his attraction to the woman, lead to the usual fun.
